Missisque River, Vermont

This crooked river is about 75 miles in length. It rises in Orleans county, and passes N. into Canada, about 5 miles; it then returns to the state at the N.E. corner of Franklin county, and after meandering through the north part of that county, it falls into Missisque bay at Highgate. There are several falls on this river, which afford numerous mill sites; but it is generally sluggish in its course, and being wide, is rather shallow. Its waters fertilize a large portion of country and it is navigable for small vessels six miles from its mouth.
